Stories of leadership and life with Jo Saxton and Steph O'Brien

Apr 22, 2019

Pastor Laurel is back talking maximizing leadership with Jo and Steph. In this highly practical episode, Pastor Laurel shares from her personal experience and tools and resources which have helped her move forward into all God has for her.

 

A practical way to maximize your leadership:

  1. Divide your paper into two down the middle.
  2. Write your gifts and dreams on one side and fears and vulnerabilities on the other side. Draw yourself in the center.
  3. Put the people you trust most on one part of paper and people you trust least on the other.
  4. Who are the dream busters and the people you need to let go? Who are the people who encourage you and spur you on in your dreams?
  5. What resources/steps can you explore next to grow further in your leadership?



Resources mentioned:

Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead - Sheryl Sandberg

Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy - Sheryl Sandberg

How women rise - Sally Helgesen,  Marshall Goldsmith

How do mentors and sponsors impact our leadership and how do we find them? Listen in to hear how Jo and Steph’s leadership has been helped by mentors and sponsors and what we can all do to open the doors for others.  

 

Discussion questions:

  1. Who could you sponsor right now? Where do you have influence? Is there someone who you can open a door for who is a different gender or background than you?
  2. Are you praying about finding a mentor/sponsor? Are you meant to take a next step in approaching someone or keep sowing in prayer right now?

Do you have a tribe? Join Jo and Steph as they talk about the why and hows of maximising your tribe and the barriers to them.

 

Things that hinder us from being part of a tribe:

  1. Feeling you need to / should do something on your own
  2. Feeling we are in competition with others
  3. Idolising the nuclear family

 

‘Now he's using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone.’ Ephesians 2:10 - Message translation.

Discussion questions:

  1. Do you desire to have an ‘oikos’ - an extended family that is committed to you? Have you prayed about it? What is God saying about the next step?
  2. Do you feel a spirit of competition or a spirit of helping others when it comes to available opportunities?
  3. What opportunities are available to you right now for building community that you could step towards courageously?
